I had the opportunity to work on some Toyota spots for Authors // H&L Partners to be aired around President's Day. It was a blast getting to bring the likeness of George Washington and Abe Lincoln to life, in a goofy way. I completed 4 of the 8 sections that got cut together for several TV ads, including George launching himself with a cherry tree slingshot, and the end dealership lockup. The biggest challenges on the project were utilizing the time well to combine character animation and compositing the rest of the scene.
The team worked together excellently, and one of the most crucial aspects in bringing the work to life was Kirksey’s illustration work, and Chris Zachary’s previsualization. At least 3 of the shots were mocked up in Cinema 4d first, and then sent to me for cel animation.
